No comments here, so I just thought I’d leave one. Because this here cartoon is pretty great. Why is the last row faded out, though, I wonder.
since i’m probably missing the obvious, i’m going to guess it’s to highlight the irony of the suggestion that we’re no longer a shared culture of still images by a cc-licensed webcomic that has viewers from all over the earth, no less.

I made 50 dollars betting back at the primary campaign he would win, I could see, but I am a professional.
I should have used a bookie instead of betting against my dad. The odds were so long back then.
But even money and being right was satisfactory.
